Sunday Streets Great Highway & Golden Gate Park a Huge Success for 2011 – Dogs, Dancing, Davids, Dudes and Dune Rolling

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Sunday Streets Great Highway 2011 II on July 10 worked out all right, with generally sunny skies in the east and generally cloudy skies in the west.

Although some, like The Tender found today’s event in the West Bay sad:

Sunday Streets at Golden Gate Park & the Great Highway was a bit sad – foggy, windy, not many people… Also: http://t.co/aCWQhit

Didn’t seem like a whole bunch of people this go around, but oh well.

Dog #1:

Dog #2:

Dancing – Lindy in the Park:

David #1, Chiu to be precise – he’s running for Mayor or something. (D.C. won the Mayoral race today, Sundays Streetswise. Saw some people from the Dennis Herrera and John Avalos campaigns as well.) That’s famous Public Bikes Founder Dan Nguyen-Tan‘s famous orange Funcycle in there – it seats seven:

David #2, Onek to be precise – he’s running for District Attorney or something:

Dude #1, It’s Mark Lukach (plus Dog #3) repping the always-reliable Ocean Beach Bulletin. OBB in the Hizzy:

And Dude #2, piloting the Famous 415 Quadricycle:

Dune Rolling:

AT&T sent its youngest employees to hand out shopping bags. They were gathering pro-utility box petitions for U-Verse / LightSpeed, I think:

But life went on in the West Bay regardless. So the Beach Chalet was serving a full house:

And the surfers were surfing. “00:43:17 Look at that. Breaks both ways. Watch. Watch. 00:43:20 Look! Good six-foot swells!”

And the Segwayers were Segwaying:

Hurray!

Can We Live With a Few Metal Boxes on Our Sidewalks? YES WE CAN!

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Oh oh, there’s a new “neighborhood call to action” in San Francisco.

“Sometimes it’s possible for really significant changes to slip past normal public planning channels almost unnoticed.”

Now this man certainly doesn’t look too happy about a LightSpeed utility box installed in his nabe, but San Francisco’s new boxes should be shorter than this. People, teh Sunset district with a few more metal boxes here and there is still going to be the Sunset, avec all its pluses and minuses. This LightSpeed program won’t be a “significant change” to anything. You NIMBYs are getting out of hand.  

Look what DPT has to go through with DPW to make deadly Masonic Avenue a little safer a with a single (one) controller cabinet. The notice pictured below was posted on umptyump telephone poles recently.

Countdown signals now! And LightSpeed, meh, whatever, doesn’t matter.
